Posture correction with Postureminder

There are countless devices on the market that claim to correct your posture, including products like the iPosture which you wear and vibrates against your skin whenever you slouch to irritate you into standing/sitting up straight, and various posture support braces and garments that aim to constrain your body into good postures.

These are often expensive, and in the case of back support braces that you wear under your clothes, you'll probably need to buy more that one of them. 

Here at Postureminder we have fundamental issues with these posture correction "solutions".  Whilst they may provide short-term benefits, we believe that they are too uncomfortable and intrusive to use on a regular basis, and that they try to constrain your body too much and encourage you to rigidly adopt a fixed posture. 

Most ergonomists and healthcare professionals recognise the vital importance of movement to your musculoskeletal health.  Any talk of "correct posture" by these experts is always accompanied by the point that any posture, even a good one, can be damaging if you sit in it without moving about regularly.  Constraining yourself with a support brace or iPosture device is not a long-term solution.

Postureminder is the only posture correction solution that helps you do what the posture experts say is healthy.

Postureminder will never encourage you to sit rigidly in a good posture.  It only reminds you after you've been sitting in a poor posture for an extended period.  You have control over how quickly it provides a reminder that you've been sitting in a damaging posture, so you can adapt it to your needs and working style, but it will never encourage you to sit rigidly.

Indeed, if you sit in bad postures but keep moving around, Postureminder will delay its reminder to you because your movement offsets the fact you're sitting in poor postures.  Conversely, if you sit fixed in a good posture for a long period you'll also get a reminder about the importance of moving about.  In contrast, posture brace would be constantly irritating you as you moved about, and encouraging you to sit rigidly!

Postureminder's other tools, particularly the break reminders and stretch exercises, combine with the intelligent posture reminders to also encourage movement for the health of your spine (not to mention the rest of your mind and body). 

Finally, because Postureminder is far less intrusive and constraining than wearing a brace, so you can use it daily to help you improve your posture and working habits in the long-term.

 

What our users say...

 

Helen Killeen, Business Manager, Glaitness School, Orkney:
"I am impressed both as an employee and a manager with Postureminder. It helped me personally to adopt and sustain good habits when keyboarding. As a manager, the fact that employees receive integrated ergonomic training and self-assessment report as part of the software package means it is great value too!"

David Brewerton, Programmer and posture blogger at www.computer-posture.co.uk:
"There are other software packages available but PostureMinder is the best Iíve seen and after two weeks Iím convinced that it is actually improving my posture and easing my pain problems"

Aaron Gammon, Professional Musician:
"Postureminder continues to help me improve my sitting position both during my day-to-day computer use, and during my regular practise as a percussionist. Used intelligently, in my case in conjunction with other techniques, Postureminder has proven itself to be an invaluable tool in my ongoing efforts to improve my posture, health, and well-being. Initial use of the software was quite an eye-opener for me! Although I felt that I was very aware of my own back problems, I was extremely surprised to what degree the posture I unconsciously felt was 'correct' actually was out of alignment. I am grateful that this intelligent software exists, has been developed and is maintained, and cannot recommend it highly enough. "

Andy Woods, PhD (Trinity College Dublin):
"Postureminder's gentle reminders to sit up straight are great - I am a psychologist and recognize that consistent unobtrusive feedback is essential in making any such change in your life. Thank you PostureMinder for improving my posture :-)"

Margaret Chou, Marketing Administrator, Lamri Ltd:
"I bought Postureminder 18 months ago and it's made a significant improvement to my working style. I spend a large proportion of the day at my desk but with Postureminder I donít end up hunched over my mouse exacerbating my shoulder problem. This is the next best thing to having my chiropractor sitting next to me and a whole lot cheaper"

Aaron Gerstonkorn, Muniworks, US:
"Really love your product, it has really kept me in the right position and helped reduce eye strain with the micro breaks"

Tim, Business Recovery Partner, leading UK accountancy firm:
"Better habits are ensuing...It's certainly helped me"

Sue, Vocational Rehabilitation Consultant:
"It proved very useful in identifying when I was not sitting correctly. It helped me to improve my posture a lot. Iíd definitely recommend it to computer users, especially those with existing musculoskeletal disorders"

Liz, Software Tester, Manchester:
"I'd been having back problems for three or four years and even had to take time off work when it got too bad. I've also had physio to try to help alleviate the pain. Since I started using Postureminder my back pain has definitely improved"

Diane Kermode, MD of Beechwood Occupational Health Ltd:
"Postureminder is a good, uncomplicated product which acts as a safeguard for businesses to use to protect and educate employees. It will be very useful for those with pre-existing postural or musculoskeletal problems"

David Nesbitt, Private Chartered Physiotherapist, Whetstone, North London:
"As a physio I have found Postureminder really complemented the advice I have been giving my patients regarding posture and their working environment. A great concept, very user friendly and an essential tool for all computer-based workers"

PC Advisor magazine review:
"Postureminder is ideal for those concerned about how they sit now, or want to prevent problems in later life. The sooner you can start sitting right the better."

Michael van Straten, Health Journalist of the Year:
"Backache is one of the most common reasons for lost days at work and it's also a frequent problem for young children. Latest research shows that long periods at a computer can cause backache, pain in the neck, headaches and RSI...Around 32% of us sits for 10 or more hours each day, slouching in front of PCs and TVs. This bad posture is the trigger for back pain. [This] award-winning system will change how we all sit at computers. PostureMinder is new software that watches while you work. It sends webcam messages if you slouch, shows how to set up workstations and tells when you need a break"

Leading Physiotherapist Christopher M. Norris MSc MCSP MBAcC:
"Norris Associates have been providing occupational health services to bluechip industries in the Northwest for over 20 years now. During that time we have worked with clients such as Jaguar, Shell, Kelloggs. One of the factors which is the source of many painful conditions in office workers is prolonged sitting at a computer. This constant low level stress causes muscle fatigue, neck and shoulder pain, and back conditions. To combat this type of occupational stress our physiotherapists often recommend taking regular breaks and performing simple stretching exercises to prevent accumulated stress in the body tissues. Well, now we have found an excellent software program which encourages users to do just these things"
